Below are the Top Ten Books on Comics and Comic Books that I currently have in my collection, or use for reference....

I am listing them here with my reviews and reasons why I have them listed as my 'Top Ten'.


Fantastic Four Omnibus Volume 1 HC (Fantastic Four) (Hardcover) Ok, this is IT !!

The one gift I want for Christmas !

Reprinting the first 30 issues of the FF by Stan Lee & Jack Kirby, plus more special articles.....

'NUFF SAID !!

EXCELSIOR ! - by Stan Lee & ...

Presents the Life of Stan Lee in his own words, from the beginning of the Atlas era of Comics, through his role in the Creation of the Marvel Comics Era.

Yes, some of it repeats what he has said at conventions, and in other books, but he really gives a good accounting of what he has stood for all these years!

This is A great book for those interested in the early history of the Marvel Age of Comics !

Stan Lee and the Rise and Fall of the American Comic Book (Hardcover)

The Behind the Scenes book....

I have read Comics Journal articles on Stan, so knew a little on what went on behind the scenes.... but this book really adds to my knowledge.

A good book for those that are interested in the history of Stan and of the Comic Book Biz !

The Comic Book Makers (Paperback)

A great history story by Joe Simon, partner of Jack Kirby in the early years of comics!

One of the better reads out there about the Golden Age of Comics

Marvel Visionaries: Jack Kirby (Hardcover)
by Jack Kirby, Joe Simon, Stan Lee

Until Mark Evanier's book on Jack Kirby comes out, this will be some of the best reading on Jack's printed works for Marvel from the early days to when he left for DC

Marvel Visionaries: Steve Ditko (Hardcover) by Bill Mantlo, Stan Lee, Steve Ditko, Michael Fleisher, Tom DeFalco, Roger Stern

I do rave a lot about Jack Kirby's artwork in these Comic Book Circus web pages.... but this is also a great art book by another of early Marvel's Masters.... Steve Ditko

Plus it has 27 stories in its pages.... What a Deal !

COMIC WARS: How Two Tycoons Battled over the Marvel Comics Empire--And Both Lost by Dan Raviv

This book presents the author's view of the battle over the once mighty Marvel Empire!

As a current stockholder in the new Marvel Entertainment, it amazes me on how much the public is not let in on.... all the behind the scenes stories that this book tells are not to be missed !!

The Official Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide, Edition #35 (Official Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide)
by Robert M Overstreet

The 'Bible' of Comic Book Pricing.

I have been emailed multiple times as to "How much is my comic worth?".

If everyone who's ever emailed me asking 'How much is my comic worth?" actually bought one, they'd have to reprint second editions of this book halfway thru the year!

Get your own and use it when buying or trying to sell comics, and carry it with you to comic conventions!

For Your Copy of this guide, just click on the cover of the Price Guide Book to the left!

The Official Overstreet Comic Book Grading Guide
by Robert M Overstreet

In My Opinion, this is the best illustrated book on the market!

This grading guide sets a new industry grading standard by replacing the eight traditional grading terms--from poor to mint--with a more accurate one hundred-point numerical system and includes a ten-point whiteness level system, a glossary, and illustrative grading examples... whew! All that in one book !!!

The pictures alone are a great help if you're a novice collector, or trying to sell comics that you inherited or bought at a flea market. You can't sell the books properly without knowing what grade they are in. Otherwise you are possibly cheating yourself or your buyers !

I personally don't have any to sell you, (definitely keeping my copy!), but just click on the Grading Guide Book cover above and you will be taken to where you can purchase one!

Baby Boomer Comics (Paperback)
by Craig Shutt, Jim Mooney (Illustrator)

Great articles written about the important events that happened in the Silver Age !

Written by one who should know..... Mr Silver Age Craig Shutt himself !!!
